    Do pre/post-cruise hotel bookings have to be at MCO for Port Canaveral sailings? Ideally I'd like to travel straight from my flight to Port Canaveral, then have a post-cruise night at a Disney Springs-area resort. Thank you.

    Hi, Laura! Thank you for returning to planDisney. I’m glad you find us to be a helpful resource. 

    Disney Cruise Line is dedicated to providing all Guests with the most pleasant and hassle-free cruise experience possible. From arranging hotel stays and ground transportation to offering amazing Port Adventures and onboard fun, a Disney Cruise is a stress-free way to see the world. 

    Disney Cruise Line motorcoach transfers are available between the Orlando International Airport and Port Canaveral and between the Disney Resorts Collection Hotels and Port Canaveral. However, Disney Cruise Line can also arrange private transportation to take you to the port. They recommend the Hilton Cocoa Beach Oceanfront. It’s only five miles from the terminal, and the hotel provides a shuttle in the morning. A Disney reservation agent can help you determine the most convenient transportation for your holiday.  

    Another option is to reserve a private town car service to whisk you from the airport to your hotel. Guests have recommended Happy Limo, FL Tours, and Tiffany Towncar as reliable modes of transportation. You can sometimes request a complimentary grocery stop to pick up any last-minute necessities. Rideshare companies like Uber and Lyft are also an option. 

    You’re sailing during the most wonderful time of the year, Laura! Keep an eye out for jolly entertainment, festive food and beverage offerings, and exclusive merchandise on your Very Merrytime Cruise. I can’t wait for the brand-new tree lighting ceremony. The tree is three decks tall! I hope this information helps you plan for your upcoming voyage! Sail back to planDisney if you have any additional questions. We can’t wait to help!

    SEAS the adventure!
